Yes, you! Listen, it’s important that you hear this. How about being thoroughly honest with yourself? Face it! It’s difficult, you are falling apart. Your life is going to a different direction to what you envisage it. You feel like you cannot do anything to stop the downward spiral. It keeps going deep, and you keep looking at yourself and you admit that you have no control.

You decide to check videos on YouTube for motivation but it’s not working. You keep pushing everyone around you away. You don’t have Facebook and WhatsApp anymore; things that used to make you laugh seem childish. You lost your smile and lately you are easily irritated.

But, wait! How about you change perspective? Stop overthinking and take a vacation away from your problems. Take a trip away from those thoughts! Every time you start thinking about that problem, shift focus! We all have problems. I am not getting a job. I don’t know how I’m going to pay rent next week. I don’t know how I’m going to buy food. I’m tired of asking for money from my family cos they always complain.

But I’m not going to give up because I made a promise to myself that no matter how dark the path is, I won’t give my problems joy. I’ll be hard and when life pushes me, I’m going to push back. When everything seems hard, I’m going to have hard skin. I hate being a loser. I don’t care if I go alone, I don’t mind being a broken soul. I refuse to stop dreaming. I refuse to stop setting goals. I’m going hard at this. I’m going be great and I hope you’ll be great too!
